flag nokeyword

Mode: Operational Mode


The nokeyword flag eliminates the need for the user to type in the associated argument name in the input syntax. This flag is used when the argument or attribute is apparent by context. Using flag identifer requires flag nokeyword to be specified as well.

It is recommended at each level, there should only be one argument that has the flag nokeyword set, and only when the argument should almost always be defined and when the keyword is redundant.

In the help message, arguments that have the flag nokeyword set is annotated inside <keyword>.

                argument phone-number {

                    flag nokeyword;
                    type string;
